Commentary on Community Music often highlights a lack of methodologically sound evidence for the sectors work. To address this Noise Solution set out to quantify its impacts. 

soundWELL is soundLINCS’ music delivery with the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust. It is part of soundLINCS’ Youth Music Fund C musical inclusion programme, which is taking place throughout Nottinghamshire, Leicester/shire and Lincolnshire over three years. The project delivers music workshops and training with Children in Challenging Circumstances across five diverse strands; looked after children, youth justice services, paediatric services, young parents and children with special educational needs, including those who are hearing impaired.

Here I want to look back on a collaborative project I was involved with, where young people with learning disabilities formed a band using accessible music technology.  

Research project Connect Resound brings inclusive, effective music education to excluded and remote areas around the UK. 

Jo Gibson, musician and PhD candidate for the International Centre for Community Music (ICCM) at York St John University, reflects on a 3-day summer school for Children in Care in North Yorkshire. The pilot project was devised by Jo as part of a PhD practice-as-research study, and delivered in partnership with NYMAZ and the North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) Virtual School, with funding from the National Foundation for Youth Music. All partners hope to see the project developed further in the near future.
